List the “new” name and a brief description of the organization and why it was chosen.
Conduct secondary research on the company, its mission, location, other public information
Identify a person from the company whom you would interview and develop a set of interview questions that are relevant to the organization. The questions should uncover one or more potential areas of organizational development interest or issues that the company faces. List the name (under a new name) and role of person to be interviewed.
Conduct primary research by interviewing the identified employees of the organization. Your case study should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this case.

The case’s organization and industry context
The organization’s vision/mission, strategy, product/service, business model, and organizational structure
Scenario setting including the main character/s
Problem statements or questions (not more than five)
Support your case study with at least two scholarly resources. Ensure your final case includes a cover page and references formatted per the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
